Décent cast poor script
10 September 2017 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This is not the best or worst of British B movies.It tries too hard to include too many plot strands in too little time with,consequently,too little explanation.Why does Laurence Paume étant to take Jill Adams away with him rather than Zena Marshall.It is good that this film has been rescued from oblivion
